I'm afraid the assembly of this goal resulted in a critical problem - two parts broke. My son and his mother attempted to assemble the goal, unlike one other reviewer who didn't receive any instructions, with the aid of these - although the goal came in an unbranded plain brown cardboard box. Unfortunately two parts were assembled incorrectly and they managed to break trying to separate them.

The fault, I guess, largely rests with them but on inspection of the instructions there are some issues. In essence each part is labeled with a letter of the alphabet both on the part and in the instructions. All of these parts mirror each other on each half of the goal - so a `B' section forms the vertical upright pole on both the right and left sides of the goal. This is true except parts "F' and `G' which are exactly the same dimensions but are fitted in different positions on the right side of the goal compared to the left. Fitting these incorrectly caused the problem and the breakage. Giving these parts different letters would avoid the problem which is likely to occur if the instructions are not read in detail, something unlikely to happen with the eagerness to assemble the goal on delivery.

The goal is made of circular plastic tubing so is light and can be easily moved. Parts are in cases difficult to slot together, and even more difficult to get apart, so whilst the goal can be moved around the garden it's not really designed to be taken apart frequently. The lack of a carry case for the parts makes this clear despite the manufacturer's comment that it's designed to be taken apart. Reflecting the assembly problems, which reflect on the quality of the instructions, and perhaps the build quality, I can only give two stars. Moreover the design is very similar to an existing goal we have so I don't see much new here.

The PVC construction of this goal makes it lightweight and should stop it corroding - two very appealing characteristics - but assembly was tricky.

The frame needed some brute force to put it together. I was lucky and got it right first time, despite the imperfect instructions. That meant I didn't have to try and separate any of the parts, which, judging by other reviewers' experience, is just as well. Perhaps squirt some WD40 or dilute washing-up liquid on the joints before pushing them together?

So far, it seems strong enough for lightweight balls used by children. I'm not convinced it will cope with heavier balls kicked by adults but may well be wrong - I hope so!

Overall, unless the lower weight is important to you, I'd suggest buying a metal goal and accepting that it will probably rust in due course.

Despite wild winds and unseasonably cold weather this truly has been the hit of the Easter holidays.

Utterly simple to erect, Mum did it in moments, she found it easy to sort out, the diagrams and lettering are clear and straightforward.

We previously had a smaller version but everyone is getting taller now so this eight foot high one should last us. It's great to have everyone outside shouting and enjoying themselves.

The goal is more than strong enough for boisterous family games.

Nothing more to say other than it is exactly what we hoped, well worth choosing - promising lots of fun for family and friends.

Arrived quickly in a plain box.

I've had a number of goals of varies sizes none this big but all have had terrible instructions, Hand on heart the instructions are the best I have had when it comes to constructing anything for the garden, poles are labelled which corresponds with the instructions.

My little lad of 9 is football mad, he will play football all day (sometimes on the Xbox), the goal is an ideal hight for him and his friends, just big enough, any bigger and it gets to easy to score.

The frame is a sturdy plastic that is not heavy so easy to move, I took it down on the beach in the back of my van for him and his mates.

It comes with three loop pegs to hold it in place, may need a bit more when the wind is really blowing.

Very pleased with our goal, I've spent more time in goal than I would like but that's only because my lad is enjoying uses it, and score a lot of goals passed his old man.

I made a point of getting my 14 and 12 year-old boys to put this together and use it. The assembly took them about 20 minutes and once when they had two pieces together incorrectly it was extremely difficult to get them apart again, however they managed to get it right and once assembled it has kept its shape after a prolonged period of whacking the ball at it. I'm sure an adult would have worked the relatively simple instructions out and done it in about 5 minutes but I just watched, to give me some idea of how youngsters would manage without adult help. A couple of times it lifted a bit in use due to the pegs being not fully into the ground but that was our fault not the product. Therefore make sure you peg it out properly into the ground and also use all the provided net pegs to keep the net snug to the frame.
It's a really good product with a great strength to weight ratio; once assembled it is easy to lift and move to a different location (once you've remembered to pull out the ground pegs). My two are probably on the upper age limit for a goal this size but they are impressed with it and for younger kids the size is ideal. It made our old aluminium one look like something out of the Ark! I would think both the net and the frame will weather well, it looks a neat unit. Steve Riches, Northampton, UK.

a great goal and very very solid once put together and pegged to the ground. unlike other reviews, not that easy to put together - some of the fixings were very very stiff and needed a mallet to back into place. therefore little hope of easily taking apart and certainly not easy to put togetger/take apart to be moved around.

great for the garden, not so good as a moveable goal.

This is my nephews first decent sized goal and they love it. It's robust, practical and seems easy to maintain. It's easy to put together, although with no instruction with mine, it took me a bit longer to work out where each piece goes. So far, it's taken quite a battering from the football and has stood up well. The kids love it, as do the adults.

Highly recommended!

Obtained to stop an 8 year old, who represents his county at football (so is therefore quite good) kicking a ball at a wall containing windows and patio doors, this fits the bill perfectly.

So simple to erect, the 8 year old could probably have done it himself, it feels sturdy both in general construction and the net. The inclusion of ground pegs is also a bonus.

The goal FEELS like it might break upon assembly.

This is a problem, to put it mildly.

However, having read the other reviews, I took care, and managed to get it put together ok. My son has been hammering footballs into it since, and SO FAR, all is well...

Time will tell, I guess. He likes the size and appearance of the product.

Great little goal. 5 a side size and very lightweight and easy to move around the garden. Whilst light weight, it takes a real battering and keeps in place no matter what right foot rocket is drilled into it. Net is starting to rip in places now after about a years use, but just need to tie bits together to avoid any controversial goal decisions.
